YEAR-ROUND TRAINING

When you commit to our NXT lacrosse team, you commit to the full year. It is vital that attendance at practices and tournaments is taken seriously in order to build team camaraderie, chemistry and consistency. We use the area’s most elite facilities for all of our programming; the Proving Grounds in Conshohocken (fall/summer) and Main Line Sports Center in Berwyn (winter). United Sports in Downingtown is a main venue for many of our events.

PROVEN EDUCATORS AS COACHES

With experience coaching, teaching, and developing youth, our handpicked staff is committed to NXT and the growth of our players. All coaches are background-checked and PA Act 153 compliant.

GUARANTEED ACCESS TO ELITE EVENTS

NXT runs the best events in the country, so our club players get access to the nation’s top events, showcases, tournaments, and educational programming.

THE NXT FAMILY

NXT picnics at the Navy Yard to team-bonding activities, when you’re part of NXT, you become part of our family. We want to get to know you and your family and become a part of your journey as you develop into college. We hold meetings with our players and parents each year to discuss progress, strengths and areas for improvement, academics, future goals and action plans to achieve those goals.

NXT SAFETY IS AN INDUSTRY LEADER

NXT follows careful safety procedures at all practices and events. All coaches must be PA Act 153-certified. We also have an athletic trainer on site for every practice, monitor weather and send text alert updates.

NXT WATCH  (@NXTLCboys #wheresnxt)

With NXT boys doing good things all over the county at the college level as well as locally for their high school programs, we cover our players and teams on social media and our blog. From college commitments and tournament highlights, to high school games and awards, we make sure to hype up our NXT Family!

PARTNERSHIPS

Not only do we take care of our athletes in house, we also have partner- ships with Nike, Gatorade and Next Level Video. From fresh gear to safety on and off the field, we have you covered!

NEXT LEVEL VIDEO

NXT's partnership with Next Level Video gives our players access to high-quality video packages at discounted prices. NLV’s footage and highlight videos are the best in the business. Players can use NLV’s footage to get an updated highlight reel after each season.

SUPPORT TEAM

NXT is our full-time job! We want to make the experience matter for every player. From safety, communications, college guidance, recruiting help and media coverage, our kids are supported both on and off the field with 25 full-time employees.

COLLEGE GUIDANCE PROGRAM

Our staff has created a guidebook for the college process to help each family better understand the process and support their discussions and unique journeys through the college search.

Structure

Active Boys High School Teams:

We have one elite boys youth team per graduation year for 2021, 2022, 2023, 2024, 2025, 2026 boys.  

 

OPEN TRYOUTS FOR NXT 2021-2026 TEAMS AND A 9U TEAM WILL BE HELD OVER THE WEEKEND OF AUGUST 18-20TH. REGISTER HERE.

 

We have just one team per grade, from high school down to third grade. Each team trains and competes year-round. 

 

For our third through eighth grade teams, we have open tryouts each year. Once you make the NXT high school team in ninth grade, that group and their coaches stay together for the remainder of high school.

Next Level Video is the best in the game, and players and coaches in our club have access to HD quality footage of every game that we play!
